Dolphin Software joins forces with ARX to enable digital signatures on contracts

15th September 2009, Reading, UK - Dolphin Software has announced that it has become a partner to ARX, the leading digital signature solution provider.  Customers of Dolphin Contract Manager for SharePoint will now be able to easily apply the CoSign® standard digital signatures on contracts, without the risk of fraud or the time-consuming need to revert to manual or paper-based processes.  For further information, please visit www.dolphin-software.com 

“CoSign centrally manages and automates approvals while enabling our customers to retain control, so it fits in very well with Dolphin Contract Manager.  It is also compatible with Microsoft SharePoint and its standard digital signatures are immune to forgery.  Together, Dolphin Contract Manager and CoSign give organisations a simple, safe and affordable way to manage the complexities associated with contract management,” says Ronan Lavelle, CEO of Dolphin Software.  “ARX has an excellent reputation here in Europe, particularly within life sciences and pharmaceutical industries.”

ARX is the latest partner to announce a relationship with Dolphin Software, which since launching Dolphin Contract Manager for SharePoint in May 2009, has formalised eight partnerships with distributors and signed agreements with customers in both the US and the UK. 

Dolphin Contract Manager is designed to reduce the cost, time and risk involved in managing contracts, which govern up to 80% of all business transactions.  Most large organisations are estimated to have between 20,000-40,000 contracts, usually dispersed across multiple departments with no single point of control.  With over two thirds of these organisations now predicted to be standardising on Microsoft SharePoint, Dolphin Contract Manager provides them with an easy way to create a centralised, single repository for all contracts, thereby reducing the workload, cost and risk of manual error often associated with contract management.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
